Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Us and our kids (2 and 6) absolutely loved every minute staying here. We made full use of the canoe, paddleboards and kayaks and the kids were up and in the water by 7 am each day. What an amazing view to wake up to!! It really was a magical place. Gave us the feeling of being completely out of the way yet still close enough where we could have friends visit for the day. They were all amazed at perfect the spot was for the kids. Quick drive to the Roger Williams Zoo for the day. We will definitely look to stay here again.

Heavenly Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect setting for a week of relaxation. Our kids are 2, 8, and 11, and they loved swimming, boating, hiking, and visiting nearby attractions like the Mystic Aquarium and the Westerly beaches. The house is clean, comfortable, and full of beauty. We look forward to returning!

lake house

  • 4 of 5

This place was wonderful, there was something for everyone here. My kids had a blast. The only problem I had were the beds, the queen bed was extremely uncomfortable, had two rivets in it, we ended up going home a day early because of it. The full size bed squeaked everytime my daughter rolled over. Other than that, I would highly recommend this place indeed, just would update the mattresses.

Owner's Response: When we heard this we replaced the mattress.. Only 2 years old but they don't make 'em like they used to.

I love it

  • 5 of 5

I think I can speak for each of us when I say that we loved our experience here. Although we were not ready for the bugs that came with the lake, we couldn't complain. Very secluded. Such a fun time. I would recommend to every one!!! This is a gem, something I never expected to find.

Private Beach & New Home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time at this home. It truly was a private beach directly off the house to a lake which is very hard to come by. This was perfect for our four young nephews ages 2-8. The lake was clear and the children could walk directly into the water rather than having to jump from a pier. They could sit and play in the sand and not have to be old enough to swim independently to enjoy the lake. The lake was also deep enough and large enough to keep the adults entertained. There were an abundance of toys for young and old so we didn't have to bring our own. Even the less adventurous adults felt comfortable swimming in the clean and clear water. We rented the house for a week and our family visited for the 4th. There was plenty of room for the family to share a couple of days in the home and surrounding outdoor space. We even got rained in two days and didn't go stir crazy. Other than the beach our favorite aspect was the clean, new home. My family isn't used to the nature of a typical lake house...they don't travel. This home was perfect. New amenities with a true lakehouse feel.

The restored 1850 farm house is directy on Wincheck Pond. The water is crystal clear and our sandy beach is private and wonderful. We are surrounded by thousands of acres of Nature Conservancy,Audubon , State of RI and Boy Scout land. The hiking is gorgeous , the fishing fantastic and the village fun and friendly. We are 1/2 mile from Ell Pond, a National Natural Landmark. This preserve has one of the most strikingly beautiful hikes in Rhode Island. Deer, mink, otter, red fox, raccoon, opossum, cottontail rabbits, snowshoe hare, grey squirrel, red squirrel, ruffed grouse, wild turkey, woodcock, owl and hawk all are common sights at Ell Pond - a testimony to its pristine nature. The bobcat and coyote have also been reported in the area. Be ready to climb up and down many steep hills and rocky slopes before returning to The Lake House for a swim!
